Marc Gasol's future is still unclear. The 36-year-old Spanish center, who officially retired from the Spanish national team last summer following the Tokyo Olympics, has not yet announced whether he will keep playing or he'll quit for good.

Gasol was a guest at Ricardo Moya's program "El sentido de la birra", where he spoke about numerous topics regarding life on and off the court. He also referred to his future, emphasizing the fact that he's training while pondering on his future.

"For now, I'm working out, and then we'll see what I'm going to do. I'm at a point where I want to see for how long I will be able to keep playing and what I'll feel like doing when I'm in the best possible condition," Gasol said in the show.

"I have been lucky to have played many years in the NBA and to have experienced practically everything that a basketball player will get to experience.

What I demand of myself right now is not just being on the court. I know I can help and contribute, but what I demand and what comes with that rhythm of life takes a toll and leads to constant wear and tear.

I thought to myself: "Can I get back to that level?". I erased everything and started from scratch.

Now it's time to train. That's what I will be doing. Driving the children to school, training, spending time with my family... I am at that point in life," the veteran center explained.
